So, at least in PFS, animal companions are restricted from taking weapon proficiency.
Now, I was just looking at the Choir of Blades teamwork feat. It allows an ally with the feat to have all of your racial weapon proficiencies.
I have a Tengu Hunter. Hunters give all of their teamwork feats to their animal companions. Tengus have a racial proficiency in all sword like weapons. Could I then give my AC a racial proficiency in all swords?
I'm going to step back while people throw fruit at me.
Quote:...ancestral arms, weapon familiarity, or any other racial trait that grants weapon proficiencies, you also gain those proficiencies.Yes, but your Animal companion needs hands to wield the weapon, there are no rules for pulling off a Sif.
Actually I think you CAN but I would need to check the Animal Archive book for that. Even so it would take a fair bit of work to get it going. Far more than it would be worth.
I'm at 11th level with a large ape AC.
Hand him a greatsword and cast Animal Growth.
This is only theoretical though. If I tried to bring this to a table I would fully expect blunt force trauma from a core rule book.
Sounds legit to me. Apes have hands. Hands can hold swords. If you didn't take the teamwork feat he'd have a nonproficiency penalty.
Quoting myself quoting myself.
The end result is probably no, your animal companion wont use swords. Even if they are proficient.
